Mazatlán will be joining with 67 other cities around the country in a silent march this evening to show solidarity against rising crime levels.
Everyone will gather at 5 pm at the Fisherman’s Monument to sing the national anthem. We will all be wearing white and carrying candles. The march will be silent, and will end at the Plazuela Republica.
It is the hope that this simultaneous march will send a message that the people of México are united in their desire for the end to violence and uncertainty.
If you’re in Mazatlán or any of the other cities participating, we encourage you to participate. If your city doesn’t have an organized walk, perhaps a candle in your front window at 6 pm Mexico City time would be a good alternative.
